Hungarian Chicken Paprikash

This famous Hungarian dish is not typically cooked in the crockpot which is a shame because once you taste a whole chicken made in one there is no going back. The spices and juices marinate beautifully throughout the chicken. Paprika is a well known spice used throughout Europe and is displayed perfectly in this dish. Serve the chicken over noodles with the amazing sauce dolloped on top of it all. If you do not have a crock pot then you cook the chicken in a roasting pan for 1-1/2 hours and basically the rest of the recipe is the same.

1 whole chicken
1/4 butter
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup sour cream
Cooked noodles to serve

    Hi, just want to tell you that this one really looks sooo delicious. The sauce is so creamy and matches best with a chicken. I’ll try this one out other than my own canning salsa recipes. Happy cooking!
